“ Brand: W7 / Clear Pink Lip Gloss with Applicator. / Type: Lipgloss / Suitable for: Lip „
w7 was sold on the high street, exclusively at Superdrug. I know some of you may have the opinion that Superdrug is in no way 'exclusive' but there are lots of bargains to be had and are in my opinion good competitors for Boots.
However of late, I haven't seen w7 products in Superdrug so they may have stopped stocking the range.
There are a range of make-up bag essentials available from w7: eyeliners, mascara, shadows etc.
~ Price ~
When I bought this glosss it was quite reasonably priced at £2.99 but the RRP is now 5.95!
~ Where to buy it? ~
I got mine from Superdrug but there are some bargains to be had on the internet:
www.girlsbits.com - this site has a number of BOGOF offers on w7 products.
www.beautyspotcosmetics.co.uk - RRP 5.95, this site sells it for 1.95.
As with all online buying, check out the P&P charges.
~ Packaging ~
The gloss came in a little transparent, plastic box. No fancy packaging in sight!
The gloss itself is like most standard glosses on the market. The bottom section is transparent so that you can see the colour of the gloss that you are getting and the top has a 'matt' silver screw top lid.
~ My Experience ~
I'm unsure of the name of this particular gloss as it only has lipgloss written on it, no 'name' but there are other shades available from pale toffee, clear to different shades of pink.
In the holder, this gloss looks very, very pale pink.
The gloss is relatively easy to apply but due to the sticky nature of it, it doesn't glide over your lips.
Yes..... it's sticky which I'm not keen on, so sticky that some strands of my hair actually get stuck on to it if the wind is blowing in the wrong direction. Obviously not like super glue but it's a bit irritating!
It has quite a strong smell. I'm not averse to sweets but this is quite a sickly, sweetie smell.
When applied, the gloss is clear, transluscent. It gives a very high sheen and a great glossy look and at the end of the day that is what we hope to get from a lipgloss.
Another plus is that it does stay on and remains glossy for quite some time, longer than other glosses that I have used.
So why then, have I igven it only 4 stars?
In short, this is due to the fact that it is just a tad too sticky. With the exception of this, this is an effective lip gloss, staying glossy and 'put' for quite a while and reasonably priced.
